This book is about the survivors trying to find a safe place that has no infected people for them to live. “The Flare” is a virus that is spread by sun flares, and it will mess with people’s mind, and make people crazy. The main characters are Mark, Alec, Trina, and Deedee. Alec is a soldier before the Flare, starts killing people. Mark, Trina, and Deedee are the people that live in small towns before the Flare. My favorite character is Alec because he knows how to fight, and he shows bravery when fighting. In contrast, I felt very frustrated when Mark is hiding like a little wimp during a fight. I really like this book because the parts where Mark and Alec are facing their enemies are very intense. Therefore, I will recommend this book to my friends because I want them to read the fighting parts in the story.
